    My daughter is 8 and has been diagnosed with ADHD. So far so good with the 25mg, it does make her very tired, so she must take it in the evening, which is a good thing because it helps her wind down. She is als on on 7.5mg of Adderall to help with the focus in school. I think the combination of the two seems to be working well for her.

He was bieggining to be pegged as a "problem child" in school, always in trouble for things I knew, as his mother, he couldn't control. After disscussion with his Dr., we put him on a nightly dose of 25mg. This showed immediate results. After 2 weeks of meds I no ... Show Full Comment
